Stayed for 3 nights last weekend. Everything was brilliant. The hotel is located right at the South end of Kendal It was a 20 minute walk down a slope into Kendal town centre or a £4 taxi ride back up with the shopping. This walk may be a problem for the elderly or infirm, but it is a pleasant enough walk with part especially with a slight detour right along by the riverside.
We stayed in a King 4 poster room with out pet dog and it was spacious and very clean with a bed and lovely clean, crisp, white linen. It also had a part view of the local hillside. We were on the second floor and the lift available is a bit on the small size for 2 people and a pooch with luggage, but that was only a minor problem when checking in and out. The breakfast is as good as anywhere I have stayed with free range eggs, back bacon, the best sausages I have ever tasted as well as beans, lovely sautéed mushrooms and fried bread. Needless to say lunch wasn't required. We dined in the bar area rather than the restaurant on an evening as we were allowed to bring our pet dog with us when we ate there. The Hotel is a lovely Manor House with a large car park which is lit at night. There is a night porter available after 23.30 hrs for night owls. As I said the staff were amazing they were very, very friendly and knowledgeable and could not do enough for us throughout our stay. This hotel is definitely not a Holiday Inn and what I liked especially was that all of the other guests went out of their way to be chatty with everyone else. They were obviously enjoying their stay as well and I never heard a bad word said about anything. All 30 of the bedrooms were fully booked on the Saturday evening and most were occupied on the Friday and Saturday.
There are some really good half board deals to be had at this Hotel and you won't believe it, but it was actually cheaper than others were paying in the Premier Inn which is at the other end of town. Definitely a great place to stay in Kendal. Oh, and I forgot to mention that it also has a Swimming Pool, not that I had time to sample it during the stay, maybe next time eh?
